TR2/3/3A Where have you guys put your stereos and speakers?

Hello,
I was just curious where good places are to put the stereo and speakers in a Tr3?
I am thinking about getting a Bluetooth hidden stereo but have been wondering where good places are to put speakers that don't stick out to much.
Any ideas or pictures would be great.

On my last TR3A, I put the stereo behind the glovebox door (instead of the glovebox). Worked out well, except for rain getting past the defroster vent. I'll seal that better before I do it again.

Earlier cars already have a speaker hole in the RH kick panel, so I put a matching hole in the LH panel. Again worked well except for water, so I'll seal it better next time.

I used box type speakers in my TR6. I liked them because they are somewhat portable, you can move them/hide them if you want, but they still give good sound. I also added a headphone jack unit with volume knob from radio shack. It has two mini plug ins. Quite frankly, I use some old Sennheiser earphones. They work great and I can still hear traffic/ambient noise.

I put the stereo positive ground in the glove box and one speaker behind the glove box pointing down and one under the dash up by the tach pointing down. I did it this way, so it looks like there is no stereo in the car.
